Hi All,

Well... I finally got it! My bee-yoo-tee-ful Oscar Heyman engagement/wedding ring! I haven't posted pictures yet because I can't seem to get any really good pictures, despite following the directions in "how to take good pictures of your diamonds" and using 3 different cameras and 2 different phones. Sigh. Anyway, I didn't want to wait any longer, so I'm going to post them anyway.

Back story... this is a second marriage for both myself and my soon-to-be husband. Combined we have 4 awesome kids (ages 10, 11, 12, 12) and are so incredibly lucky to have found one another and have a second chance. We are getting married in exactly one month and one day on the gorgeous island of St. Martin... just the 6 of us and 2 of our best friends. (Big reception at home in the summer).

Now about the ring: We commissioned the artisans at Oscar Heyman to handcraft my ring. Our experience with them (and Graham Jewelers in Wayzata, MN!) was second to none. They were an absolute pleasure! Here are the stats on my ring:

CENTER STONE
Shape: Cushion Modified Brilliant
Carats: 4.03
Color: H
Clarity: VS2
Measurements: 9.12x9.08x6.06
Polish: Ex
Symmetry: Ex
Flour: None
Table: 60%
Depth: 66.7%
Culet: none
Girdle: Slightly thick (faceted)

BAND
Platinum - 2.2 ml shank
Setting TCW: 1.21 ct
52 Round Brilliant: 2.5 pts each
Clarity: VS1-2
Color: E-F
Size: 4.25 with two sizing beads (to keep it
Full Eternity Band

And now, the photos:

Stunning! Wonderfully unique petal-like halo! And I love how different the ring looks in every picture...it has a chameleon-like quality to it! Do you plan to wear a wedding band with it?

Congratulations on your engagement and beautiful new ring!

As far as I know the first commissioned and the first owned Oscar Heyman piece posted by a member of PS. In any case, a truly rare event in our community.

Congratulations on your beautiful ring! And thank you for sharing the journey of your ring and what it represents with us. It's been a real pleasure for me and I wish you all the best.

That's so funny you said my hands are gorgeous... I have "hand envy" every time I come here. All those beautiful pictures of hands in their twenties and thirties... I feel like my age is showing in my hands more than anywhere else!

Re: My Scrumptious 5.24 Oscar Heyman Engagement/Wedding Ring

Well, don't worry about your hands they look great-I'd say you give new meaning to the phrase about being an "old hand" :lol: You are now officially an old hand at designing gorgeous rings! :love: :love: :love: It looks perfect on you. What a nice outward symbol of your love-but it sounds like you are the kind of lady who would do okay if the ring was a ring pop as long as it is the right guy. The kids are still in the dark?? Or do they know you are engaged? How about a little pendant or bracelet for the girls or watch for the boys with the date engraved on them at the wedding? We could all take turns being ring bearers ;)) Thank you again for taking us along on your journey.
